COMPLETE PLANS 



Since building a house involves a major investment it demands 
careful planning. You will want a home that keeps your family 
comfortable in all kinds of weather; a hoVne of beauty, one 
that utilizes all available space to the best possible advantage. 

The designs presented in our books will meet with those re- 
quirements, and they are distinctive designs of houses with 
individuality. 

The pictures show how the houses will appear after construc- 
tion and the miniature floor plans show the size and arrange- 
ment of the rooms. It is impractical to build from a picture 
and a miniature floor plan alone. You will need complete plans 
and specifications. To build without definite plans, or with 
makeshift plans, invites misunderstandings, the possibility of 
costly mistakes and faulty, weak construction. 

Designers and builders with many years experience helping 
families choose plans and build homes of maximum quality at 
minimum expense, have prepared complete, detailed plans for 
each of the designs illustrated in our books. These tested plans 
are available to you at the nominal costs shown. All orders 
are filled promptly. 

A SET OF GARLINGHOUSE PLANS INCLUDES— 

PLANS — The complete working plans consist of blue prints 
of four elevations, showing how the house will appear on 
all four sides. A plot plan locating the house on the plot 
of ground, with dimensions in blank to be filled in locally. 
A basement plan, (in cases where house does not have a 
basement, a foundation plan is provided), showing the 
materials, height and thickness of the walls and footings, 
and location of flues, cross walls, I beams, heating plant, 
etc. Floor plan showing the arrangement and dimensions 
of rooms, closets, bath, etc. On the floor plan is also shown 
the location of electric outlets, plumbing fixtures, heat 
registers, built-in cupboards, medicine cabinets, linen cabi- 
nets, range and refrigerator space, etc. The detail sheet 
shows suggested details for the built-in features, the type 
of interior finish, style of doors, etc., and a section showing 
the construction of the building. 



SPECIFICATIONS— The specifications explain in detail the 
construction of the house from the excavation to the in- 
terior decorations. 

LUMBER AND MILL LISTS— The lumber and mill lists con- 
sist of an itemized list of the lumber and mill materials 
needed to construct the building and stating where the 
items should be used. 

THE PLANS, SPECIFICATIONS, LUMBER AND MILL 

LISTS as we have them made up for the designs in our 
books are sufficient and further details are not needed 
by any .competent builder. 

MINOR ALTERATIONS CAN BE MADE BY BUILDERS— 

It is impractical to change our tracings to show altera- 
tions, but minor alterations in design, material substitu- 
tions, etc., can be made by any competent builder without 
going to the expense of making special plans, which 
usually cost several times the price of our stock plans. 

TO OBTAIN COST ESTIMATES— An estimate of what it will 
cost to erect any house illustrated in any of our books, in 
your locality, may be obtained by consulting your local 
builder. 

ALL PLANS SENT ON MONEY BACK GUARANTEE — 

All Garlinghouse Plans are sent on a "Money Back If 
You're Not Satisfied" Guarantee. You have five full days 
after receiving the plans to study them over and to decide 
if they will serve your purpose. Plans which are not 
satisfactory may be returned for prompt exchange or 
refund.

SUGGESTIONS FOR HOME BUILDERS 

First of all, know your cost. 

Select a plan that will fit your needs now and in the future; and one designed in harmony with your tastes and your location. 

Employ a contractor who is honest, reliable and knows his business, and not because he gives you the lowest bid. 

A good plan and a well defined contract are important. "Early understandings make long friendships." 

Do not build a low house between two high houses. 

Do not build a row of houses from the same plan, or even two houses side by side from the same plan. 

In building a saleable house, it must be well planned, attractive, practical and well finished. The color scheme and decorations 
for the interior are important. 

IMPORTANT: Your house is no better than its foundation and roof. 

Foundation footings should be substantial and should rest on solid ground below the frost line, with special attention given 
to the flue and pier footings. 

A solid masonry wall often attracts dampness to the inner side; furring strips, lath and plaster on the interior allows a dead 
air space and insures dry walls and assists in insulating. 

Steel girders with iron posts for support are preferable to wood girders and wood posts. 

Proper bridging of joist is important. 

Use building paper that will expand and contract, if it breaks between boards it is worthless. 

Use well seasoned and dry oak flooring and finish lumber; it is difficult to detect dampness in oak lumber. 

Oak finish lumber, including flooring, is likely to turn dark in spots if it gets wet before it is filled. 

In finishing, care should be taken not to make hammer marks. They show up more plainly after varnishing than before. 

The weakest places in most houses are: Wood girder supports, chimney and pier footings, roof valleys and outside wood steps. 

Insulation is important especially in extremely warm and extremely cold climate. 

Be sure interior plaster is thoroughly dry before applying the finish coat. 

A coat of wax on an ordinary polished floor, three or four times a year will keep it like new, almost indefinitely. 

Paint should not be put on too thick; use more coats. 

Small conveniences mean much to the housekeeper. 

Landscaping is important and often neglected.
